Aspirational health communication campaigns and other social and behavior change communication (SBCC) interventions will encourage individuals and households to practice sound health behaviors. Advocacy for a strengthened health care system and capacity building are also part of the HCP project.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Mass media is an essential HCP tool for unifying messages on family planning and maternal and child health and for elevating the use of interpersonal communication tool kits. HCP is also working with the government of Sindh’s department of health to improve communication, health education". For example, the CCP Pakistan has a library of media products designed for the HCP project, as well as others, using television, music videos and audio jingles, documentaries, soap operas, animation, and radio. <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://ccp-pakistan.org.pk/resources/media-products/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Their library of media products, HCP products among them, is available here.</a>&nbsp; It also contains publications and an image library.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As stated on the CCP Pakistan website: "Through social and behavior change communication, advocacy and community mobilization, Center works to address social and cultural issues while adopting multi-channel holistic approaches to adequately address diversities. Center focuses on tailor-made interventions ranging from using interpersonal, group and community-based channels of communication to strategically employing traditional, modern and mainstream media vehicles to reach large and diverse groups of people. Center draws on Johns Hopkins University's global resources through a Memorandum of Understanding that allows it to work jointly on mutually agreed projects."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Health Communication Component (HCC) of the project, according to the CCP Pakistan, has activities including SBCC interventions, such as: designing and developing a health communication campaign and a package of SBCC interventions at the individual and household levels; advocating for more investment in and coordination of behavioural programming; and strengthening the capacity of local agencies to implement SBCC activities. Face-to-face meetings have been held with religious leaders and governement officials in which women describe problems they have encoutered with reproductive health services, in order to encourage work on the issues of care through enlisting men as allies. Publications include titles such as: "<span>Role of Religious Scholars in Ensuring the Health of Mothers &amp; Newborns" and "</span>Advocacy Kit "PAIMAN Behavior Change Communication: Matching Diversity with Variety".</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Reproductive Health, Health, Population</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>From USAID's overarching Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program: "The ...flagship MCH Program is the main vehicle for USAID to meet its Development Objective of "Improved maternal and child health outcomes in targeted areas" for Pakistan....[Among the main activities:] Behavior Change Communications (BCC) &shy;use commercial marketing techniques and behavior change communication strategies to increase family planning services, pre- &shy;and post&shy;natal care services, and increase availability and access to affordable services and commodities."</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.comminit.com/global/files/imagecache/thumbnail/pakistanmombaby-e1410444350774.jpg" alt="" title="" width="100" height="67" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-partner-text"> <div class="field-label">Partner Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>JHU-CCP, USAID, Mercy Corps, and local CSOs: Rural Support Programme Network and Center for Communication Programs Pakistan.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-contactinfo"> <div class="field-label">Contact Information:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/node/268590">Kim Martin - Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://ccp.jhu.edu/projects/pakistan-health-communication-project/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">JHU-CCP website</a>, <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=https://www.usaid.gov/sites/default/files/Maternal%20and%20Child%20Health.pdf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Maternal and Child Health Program Pakistan [PDF]</a>, and <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://ccp-pakistan.org.pk/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">CCP Pakistan website</a>, September 1 2015.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.comminit.com/global/content/pakistan-health-communication-project" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.comminit.com/global/content/pakistan-health-communication-project#comments Pakistan Experiences Academic Institutions Advocacy Children Film and Video Bilaterals Civil Society MDG 4.

The campaign’s goals were threefold: encourage Haitians to participate in the fight against HIV and AIDS, promote behaviours that reduce the risk of HIV transmission, and strengthen support for people living with HIV.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The project involved: strengthening the capacity of Government of Haiti partners at the central and departmental levels; developing of NGO leadership; developing relationships with community and individuals; and offering HIV services, with the objectives of changing social norms and creating an enabling environment for the adoption of preventive behaviours, as well as increased demand for services and reduced stigma for those living with HIV.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>EVIH-T supported World AIDS Day planning to promote the campaign and introduced the communication components of the campaign: banners in the streets, posters at health institutions and community organisations, SMS (text messaging) and robocalls, and radio spots airing on national radio. These media shared the same message: Sida! Mwen pap pran. Mwen pap bay. (AIDS! I’m not catching it. I’m not passing it on.) The radio spots were designed to promote personal responsibility, for example: “My life is my own. I have to protect it. "[...] I’m not taking any risks so the AIDS virus won’t get inside..." or "That’s why I’m controlling my sexual activity. I’m not hooking up with a bunch of partners right and left." The spots also addressed stigma and support issues for people living with HIV, e.g.: "I’ve been living with the AIDS virus now for three years. When I found out, I thought my life was over. But, thanks to the support of friends, family and coworkers, and also thanks to the medications I always take every day, I’m beginning to love life again. [...] I’m not giving my wife AIDS or anyone else. With all my strength, with all my conviction, I say: AIDS! I’m not passing it on!" </p><p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In August of 2014, a sport-involved campaign was added using the slogan "Sport for Life" as messaging on T-shirts and television and radio spots.
